Having had KC BBQ many many times I will tell you this place is worth your time if in the area. Prices are good and the food is as well. Not my favorite place but it is well worth a visit if you like BBQ in a basic environment. I like ordering meat by the pound at a counter, no... More

Here is something you hardly get a restaurants anymore ( homemade fries ) and they are very good. So, if you want some great BBQ and like homemade fries this is the place to eat.

The food here is very good, with a variety of all types of meat and sides. The restaurant isn't a lot to look at on the inside; it's about what you would expect for a BBQ joint. The portions were ample and the price was very reasonable. The sides were good. Note that fries are separate, and they are worth... More

When you walk in, you order at the counter. I ordered the combination plate with beef and ham. Both had good taste, but were on the dry side. The sauce had good flavor. My wife had the wings. They tasted good and were crispy under the sauce. Just too much sauce. Our sides were pretty plain. There was nothing special... More

I had the 3 meat sweetwater plate. it was more than I can eat (I'm 6'1, 210 pounds). I had the ribs, bbq beef, and... More

My hubs and I popped in here right when we moved, and we weren't disappointed. The portions are good, it's affordable, and it's very tasty! It is not the BEST BBQ in the world, but pretty darn good for a local place. It's very casual...an order at the counter and they'll call your number kind of place. Make sure you... More

Was out at Ft. Leonard Wood and Sweetwater was recommended so I decided to check it out. The restaurant had an authentic BBQ restaurant look. The staff was friendly and knew their menu and explained to those who weren’t regulars. I ordered the Combo platter, Turkey and Beef Brisket. I have had a lot of BBQ in my day and... More

Some of the best pulled pork you will get in this area. Really good food fairly inexpensive and services quick and friendly. If you're into the barbecue type food this is the place to be.

I love BBQ; I really do. When I travel I always look for it, and I'm most often really disappointed. Not here. The service was a bit cold, but that's just the first 3 minutes of the meal, so I can get over that. I had the combo meal of brisket, pulled pork and turkey. The turkey left me cold,... More

Decided to try this place after reading the reviews stating how great it was. Location is very easy right off the exit. Upon entering we were not so pleasantly greeted by the very unhappy person behind the counter. No smile, no pleasantries, just to the point! We ordered the Sweetwater Special and once it came, I was very disappointed by... More
